Equity in the Center is a fieldwide initiative to influence social sector leaders to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to achieve race equity, which is the condition that would be achieved if one’s race identity no longer influenced how one fares in society. The group believes race equity is possible and supports foundations and nonprofits in their proactive counteraction of social and race inequities inside and outside of their organizations. Their three-pronged strategy to achieve race equity aims to accelerate leaders, support organizations, and inspire action. This grant is part of the Knowledge for Better Philanthropy strategy, as Equity in the Center creates and disseminates knowledge about how to build a race equity culture.

for support of Equity in the Center
A new initiative of ProInspire, Equity in the Center’s goal is that all U.S. non-profit organizations and foundations become racially diverse and actively participate in, defining, and advancing equitable opportunities for all. To achieve this goal, Equity in the Center creates, disseminates and curates knowledge to support foundations and nonprofits in shifting mindsets and systems and taking action to combat structural racism in all levels of the social sector. They also host communities of practice and convenings, including their first ever Equity Summit in 2017 in conjunction with the annual Independent Sector conference. They aim to support leaders and organizations in these difficult, yet potentially transformative efforts.
